Wednesday, 16 May 2012, saw the finals of the Copa Vicky Baker. A 6-goal, 4-chukker tournament, the Copa Vicky Baker is the penultimate tournament of the Puesto Viejo Polo season. The ever-strategic La Julia – headed up by Puesto Viejo member, Hernan Dotzel – battled the gung ho El Mangrullo, to a victorious 10-2 win in the Main Final. El Mangrullo had in their team, polo professional Lucas Torales, who had won two years previously.
Playing for the Subsidiary Cup were La Soñada and La Lucia. A dominant team throughout the tournament, La Lucia beat their opponents 6-5 to grab the title.
A record number of teams partook in the Copa Vicky Baker tournament – 11 all-in-all! The tournament was thus played over two weeks, and because of torrential downpour mid-tournament, it was the only one not to be completed on a Sunday. The Copa Vicky Baker was sponsored by Fernando Gomez and Prototype. Team members and spectators enjoyed snacks and post-tournament chit-chat at the Puesto Viejo Clubhouse after the Awards Ceremony.
The Farewell Cup – the final tournament of the season – will be held at Puesto Viejo from 22-27 May 2012.
